British Sign Language Week 2024 – How you can get involved

#SignLanguageWeek #SLW2024


We at Deafness Resource Centre are celebrating and promoting British Sign Language Week 2024 and we hope you will join in on awareness week and celebrate with us too!

The week is organised by the British Deaf Association, which has chosen the theme of ‘Promoting BSL and ISL as indigenous languages of the UK’.

The campaign aims to celebrate and educate about BSL and ISL, to encourage more people to start learning it and preserve BSL and ISL for future generations.  BSL was legally recognised in law by the UK Government on 28th April 2022.  28 April will now be known annually as ‘National BSL Day’.
